The Call of Nursing is not a typical book about nurses. It takes us behind the curtain of silence that often hangs between us -- the patients who rely on the health care system -- and the women and men who form the backbone of that system, and who are entrusted with our intimate care.

Melissa Erickson:

I worked in Women Care at a large hospital in Minneapolis which delivers more babies than any other hospital in the state. Women Care is a level IV obstetric care facility. Primarily, I cared for high-risk mothers and babies there, including high-order multiples. In May 2010, I took a new position of OB Educator and since then I have obtained my BSN, PHN, and MSN Ed. degrees.
